If you believe that you’re being investigated for a sex crime, I can’t stress the importance that you contact an attorney immediately. Our job in cases that involve false allegations is to discredit the accuser. This can be done in a number of ways, but it starts with using a private investigator. In these cases, you can’t go through with these without getting a private investigator. You have to literally scour this person’s life and the people that surround them’s life to find anything that you can possibly find to discredit them for their trustworthiness or their veracity. And sometimes that involves school records, sometimes that involves talking to other parents. Sometimes that involves getting other medical records, counseling, subpoenaing, anything you can to find what would lead a person to making an accusation like this. Anything and everything that you can obtain to disprove, or show that this person is not to be relied upon, you need to do in these cases.
